HUBER+SUHNER has debuted what it says is its most versatile distribution box – the MASTERLINE Flex Box (MLFB) – offering operators greater efficiency when deploying new wireless infrastructure. The MASTERLINE Flex Box features plug and play functionality with multiple mounting options, providing a number of placement possibilities to achieve cost-effective, flexible, high-capacity deployments. The compact size coupled with a weight of just 2.2 kilograms, enables fast installation and minimal space take-up, allowing operators to install new fibre optic networks quickly and efficiently.

“Operators are facing unprecedented demand within the mobile network due to trends such as virtual reality, cloud gaming, streaming and video calls. To meet this, they must deploy new sites or upgrade existing ones and there are several obstacles when it comes to this. The new MASTERLINE Flex Box was designed exactly for this purpose,” said David Neher, Product Manager Fibre Connectivity Outdoor at HUBER+SUHNER. “This latest product in our MASTERLINE range simplifies the deployment process and lets operators extend and build new fibre optic networks quickly and seamlessly without compromising on quality.”

Adding to the HUBER+SUHNER portfolio to create a full product range for edge optical systems with high flexibility in regard to Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM), fibre distribution and small cell deployment, the outdoor MASTERLINE Flex Box can hold up to two exchangeable field-proven, fibre optic IANOS® modules. Initially developed for indoor data centres, these modules can be utilised for outdoor applications for the first time, enabling functions such as splicing, transition, conversion and patching.
